Private limited companies
The majority of new company formations in the Germany are companies limited by shares. This is the standard ‘GmbH’ business structure for any company which has been formed with the intention of generating profit for the owners of the business.
It is remarkably popular because it allows the sharing of profits amongst the shareholders whilst also offering restricted financial liability. The shareholders are only responsible for company debts up to the value of the shares they hold in the company. So their personal assets will be protected, should the company encounter any financial difficulties.
We offer a selection of company formation packages designed to make setting up a private company as simple and straightforward as possible.
One Man Business
This company structure is commonly used by non-profit organisations in the Germany. It protects the personal finances of the company owners in a similar way as a company limited by shares. Instead of having shareholders and shares, it has guarantors and guarantees. The guarantors’ financial liability is restricted to the amount of money they guarantee when forming the company.
Rather than the company owners sharing profits, any money generated is paid back into the company to help further its aims. In some instances, the owners may take a share of the profits, but by doing so they will relinquish the company’s right to apply for charitable status.
The LLP structure is often used by those forming a company in industries which traditionally operate as partnerships, such as law practices or accountancy firms. The primary benefit of an LLP over a traditional partnership is the limited liability protection which it provides for the company partners – meaning their personal finances are protected in the event of the company encountering difficulties.
An LLP is also beneficial as it allows the company partners to remain separate to some extent – each partner is responsible for paying their own individual income tax via Self-Assessment, rather than the business being responsible for paying corporation tax.
